Irene made roots in Connecticut for the past 57 years residing in Derby, Ansonia, Seymour and Shelton. She was a gentle, kind and generous lady whose beautiful blue eyes twinkled when she smiled. Besides family and friends, she will leave her memory with those whose lives she touched throughout her 35 years of employment at Woolworth Co.; being a member of the First Congregational Church of Derby; she enjoyed doing crafts, sewing, various needlework, quilting, and baking, contributing these items to her church fairs and making sure all her family received gifts of her creations. Together with her husband, they would always welcome and help out the children within the community and at their apartment complex.
